Moreover, that record was the proof of theory we have published few years
ago in scientific paper about relationship of tuna population and great
white shark occurrence in the eastern Adriatic, where one of conclusions
was that future records of great white would probably be at open sea and
somehow connected to tuna.
Since mid of June, ban on tuna fishing is enforced. Tuna is usually caught
in areas around island of Vis and more south, so it can be presumed that
now tuna schools are freely moving toward central Adriatic followed by
great white shark. It can not be known how many great whites are in that
area currently, but definitely something positive is that great white
still lives in the Adriatic from where it was significantly depleted in
last 50 years."
